The Six Nations 2014 is intriguing with France and Ireland the unlikely unbeaten teams after two rounds. Six Nations Round 2 was surprisingly lopsided with all matches featuring margins of at least 20 points. It looks like the bubble has burst on Wales after their 26 -3 loss to Ireland. What has happened to Warren Gatland’s star studded team? Ireland’s own kiwi coach Joe Schmidt seems to have breathed life into the old legs in the Ireland team and they are looking good heading towards the business end of the season. The tactical kicking by Ireland in running the powerful Wales side around seemed to work a treat and definitely gave Joe Schmidt a point’s decision over Gatland.
The enigmatic French claimed a comfortable win over their neighbours Italy leaving them at the top of the table with Ireland. Next round’s clash between Wales and France is crucial to both teams’ chances. Italy will be battling it out for the wooden spoon with Scotland next week!
England humbled Scotland 20 – 0 in the other match. It is a bit sad that the poor old Scots are struggling in the Six Nations 2014. Being held scoreless is disappointing! Scotland’s best chance for a win comes against Italy, while there will be some fireworks when England host Joe Schmidt’s Ireland side.
For those playing SuperBru fortune favoured the brave with those going for those picking one sided matches. Most people picked France and England to win, but just over 60 percent of people picked Ireland to beat Wales and only a minority got close to the margin. Those wanting a close game over the weekend were disappointed with an average winning margin of 22 points.
